Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Publishers Weekly, 10/26/09
“Editor Hughes skims the cream off a year’s worth of culinary journalism in the latest annual. As with previous editions, Hughes captures the gastronomic zeitgeist in a broad range of essays…This is a sound reader for those looking to catch up on trends in the culinary world, but foodies already immersed in the culture are sure to find some overlooked gems.”

Booklist, 12/1/09
“In this collection, just about every level of culinary curiosity gets a chance to shine.”

Entertainment Weekly, 12/4/09
“With 50 delectable essays…the latest installation of the Best Food Writing series is less a literary meal than a stuff-your-face feast of gourmet journalism….all the pieces have a common ingredient: an insatiable, contagious curiosity about all things edible. And as if that weren't enough, their bite-size proportions even seem to anticipate your inevitable need for snack breaks.” 
 
Sacremento Bee, 11/22/09
“This is a book worth devouring.”

The Hippo NH, 12/2/09
Best Food Writing 2009 is that annual collection of food lust”

Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, 12/2/09
“The cream of the crop of food writing compilations…The 2009 selections are the best yet.”

San Francisco Magazine, 12/1/09
“This anthology is perfect for dipping into, whether you’re craving something light…or something sweet.”

San Jose Mercury News “The book captures the gastronomic zeitgeist in a broad range of essays”

Publishers Weekly
Editor Hughes skims the cream off a year's worth of culinary journalism in the latest annual. As with previous editions, Hughes captures the gastronomic zeitgeist in a broad range of essays; she opens strong with Timothy Taylor's witty take on connoisseurs and gourmands, an examination of the slow and raw food movements, and a vendor's take on farmers' markets. Though some topics, like legendary steak houses and the neighborhood diner, have been done to death, they're carried by the quality of the writing. John DeLucie's sardonic account of his truffled macaroni and cheese, as well as Tim Carman's brilliant "How Not to Hire a Chef," are the kind of slice-of-life tales that deserve a wider audience, and make up for the volume's misses (Margaret McArthur's take on cooking the perfect soft-boiled egg, Lettie Teague's piece on wine scams). Other crowd-pleasers include Calvin Trillin's quest for the best barbecue in Texas and Robb Walsh's all-too-short examination of a classic pairing: oysters with martinis. This is a sound reader for those looking to catch up on trends in the culinary world, but foodies already immersed in the culture are sure to find some overlooked gems.
